Yes, I admit, I was rather eerily excited in the return of 90210. But I get excited about documentaries on The History Channel on how they build bridges so I tend to be easily entertained. Of course, so far the bridge documentaries so far have way more suspense (get it? SUSPENSE? Suspension brid…oh never mind!)
So, here is the rundown of the show so far. I have yet to learn everyone’s name so bear with me. I like Kelly (who looks prettier now then she did 10 years ago), Rob Estes, Ethan, the drunk grandmother and the bad chick who can sing really well but steals money out of BFF’s purse.
Who I can’t stand so far: Naomi (she looks older than her mom), the teacher hitting on Kelly (He might be interesting if he hooked up with Naomi), and each twin who are so boring and goody goody, they make Brandon and Brena when they first arrived in Beverly HIlls look like escapees from Oz.
On the fence: Silver and Lori Loughlin.
Yes, the twins. What are their names? Annie and…., yes I just haven’t gotten invested in him. Sigh.
Let me get this straight, Silver’s boozing mother, the lovable Jackie Taylor, is making life such a living hell at home that Silver is secretly sleeping at a woman’s shelter instead of heading to her sister’s house? The hell? Also, am I to believe that Nameless’s presence is so important at a party where a renegade but stellar copy of the latest Bond flick will be shown, they are willing to wait for him and hang out at a bowling alley? SERIOUSLY?
But probably the biggest ARE YOU KIDDING ME MOMENT was when Naomi was just so taken aback when she realized her father was having an affair with ANOTHER WOMAN and then shocked her mommy knew about it. Is this not 2008? Did she honestly think her parents were happy? You’re telling me that all of her 16+ years her parents have been able to properly fool her into thinking they are a big, happy family like the Kansaseons?
It’s ok. I can live with it. I was hoping that the return of Jackie would somehow give Silver a scar as her mom flung a booze filled glass at her over the disgust to find out she was calling herself Silver which then would alert Kelly that something might be wrong at home. But nope.
